But how would we show our love to God? This is an interesting question because we tend to focus more on how God shows His love to us. For example, we are all familiar with the idea that Grace is God’s Gift to us. And mercy is something God also gives to us. And we understand that God gives us grace and mercy because he loves us. But if love is really a two-way street, then the question is more than just how God shows that he loves us. The question also becomes how do we show our love for God. If Grace and Mercy is God’s Gift to Us. Then what is our Gift to a righteous God. What can we give Him who literally has everything, owns everything, and created everything? Can we give flowers as our gift to him? Can we give candy to show our affection to Him? What is it that we can do to show that we love him?
In John 14:15 Jesus makes a simple statement that shows how we can express our love for Him. He says, "If you love me, then keep my commandment." It's a clear statement that even a child can understand. We don't need to give Jesus anything to express our love for Him. What He desires is simply our obedience to His Will. So if you want to give Jesus a gift to show your love, remember that OBEDIENCE IS OUR GIFT TO GOD.
